Wales Real Estate

  • 02 October at 04:27 - by edwardt - 779 views


I have the chance to buy a plot of land for a very good price in Wales.  I am thinking of building on it but am not sure about the likelihood of planning and funding.  I would like some advice about becoming a budding developer.

have you even tried to get planning yet?

no I have not engaged the services of a planning officer

mate you need to do that first because the likelihood is that that land is cheap for a reason and if it isn't being offered to you through a family member or something you have to think of this:  why has no one else bought it? Reason: you can't get planning permission for it. National Parks is really hard and even if you start, you may take years to get it because they'll refuse it first then it has to go to appeal, then you have to try again.  It takes a lot of time and money. Once you have it though if you're really persistant especially in that area you would increase the value of the land 100 fold before you even start building.

have you not heard of the new planning rules being brought in next year?  they are making it, certainly in certain areas, much easier

it depends I think on your business...are you looking to put caravans on there?  if so, as long as you can prove it's beneficial to the local economy, it will be easier

I hadn't thought of caravans I was just thinking of building houses but you can't get finance for them
